Ted Cruz just endeavors to tell the truth about 'what's happening.' That's all, he's not about self-aggrandizement and wasting huge sums of taxpayers' money, right? If you watched the bobbleheads on the couch at Faux News, you'd think they were interviewing Jesus Christ himself.

Cruz admits in the book that he smoke pot in high school! In an attempt to make his sanctimonious humility look more awesome than a Democrat's, he admits he didn't do it wrong, he inhaled. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is swooning over him.

'You didn't hold back' (hairflip).

He tells this tale about a rival high school who stole his Baptist (can't forget that) High-School's mascot. So he and a few other friends toilet papered the enemy school. He refused to give up the names of his cohorts when he was caught, because he's just THAT noble. His principal was willing to destroy a letter to Princeton, saying he was unfit for the University, because he was so principled and forthcoming. Was he forthcoming too when he wasted $24 billion of our taxpayer cash in 2013 with his government shutdown?

Cruz is, perhaps, one of the most dishonest people in government.

Politifact has found only 8 of 47 ( or 17 percent) of Ted Cruz’s statements to be deemed either “True” or “Mostly True.” The lone “True” statement pertained to toilet seats. Only 4 of the 7 “Mostly True” statements checked by Politifact happened since he became a senator. Of those 4, three of them, while technically factual based on his wording, were contextually inaccurate. To put it another way, Ted Cruz is one of the most dishonest politicians this country has ever seen.

Remember, Politifact is not exactly a liberal site, so this man is really reaching when he says he speaks the truth. He praises his insane dad, Rafael the Preacher, as if he's an honorable man, not the hateful monster he is.

He talks about his parents and aunt with fondness, because they stood up to Castro's Cuba. He feels amnesty is wrong. He likes Donald Trump, and he thinks that he shouldn't apologize about his anti-Mexican remarks.

'He has a way of speaking that gets attention.'

The real villains are the human traffickers.

We need to focus on national security, especially with the threat of ISIS.

Buy his book because you get an inside look at the workings of a Republican Senate Committee, meaning, you can hear the bashing of President Obama from a man who thinks his President is straight outta Kenya.
